What is Your First Thought When Seeing a Bride on her Wedding Day?

While we are working on the next phase of setting up our bridal gown Gemach, I wondered what people think when seeing a Kallah on her wedding day. I decided to post a question in a few groups on FaceBook. Here are a few of the positive comments, I have not included names of those who posted them.

"Thank G'd, another Bat Israel that found her half Neshama is getting married! Angel!!!"

"Oh what a day.....enjoy"

"Mazal tov and good luck."

"I think every Kalla should be told that davening in your wedding day is like having a blank canvas- you can paint whatever picture you want"

"She's gorgeous ! Someone's lucky and Baruch Hashem." 

"Memories of my own wedding day and feeling the world was filled with endless joy and possibility"

These comments were beautiful and heartwarming. Sadly, some of the other comments were rather negative. How can anyone look at a bride on her wedding day and think anything but something positive? I guess that shows how low we have fallen and the extent of the Sinas Chinam. It also shows how so many project their negative experiences in life onto others, for no reason. Why not think something positive? Why not look at the beauty of what is happening and think of blessings for the couple or pray that they be blessed? A positive thought is good for the person thinking it as well as for the one it is being thought of.

What is your first thought when you see a bride on her wedding day? Are you able to see the good?

We'd love to hear your thoughts. We'd prefer to hear positive thoughts. If you have had a hard experience, please don't presume that everyone's wedding or marriage will be negative.

Two more of our Bridal Gowns

 Here are two more of the bridal gowns that we obtained amongst the 60 bridal gowns. We really need a mannequin to display them adequately. We hope you are able to see the quality of the gowns from these photo's

We made inquiries as to whether there would be any Shatnes problem, especially for those bridal dresses that have shoulder pads and are happy to say that the bridal gowns / dresses are absolutely fine. One task completed on our list to progress further with our projects.
We are excited to have received our first donation towards setting up our bridal gowns in a Mechubad (respectful) manner. There are a number of details involved. Please visit our campaign, share it with your friends and make a donation too. Any amount will be most welcome. Of course a larger donation helps us reach our goals more quickly, but any contribution is very, very appreciated.

Assisting orphans with a FREE Bridal Gown!

The image above and directly below show two of the quality, modest, bridal gowns that we recently acquired, thanks to some very kind donors.

These bridal gowns are waiting to be arranged in a manner that is suitable for brides to come and take a look, try them on and borrow or rent.

Our plan is for orphan Kallot to borrow these dresses at cost of just the dry cleaning. Other Kallot are invited to rent the bridal gowns / dresses at affordable prices.

That is our goal, of course we have a way to go before we can open for the Kallot (brides) to come and take a look, try them on and borrow or rent them.

The black bags show how to dresses were sent to us.

The image of a few of the dresses arranged in our Salon, shows a few more dresses. 

We are very excited about this new addition to our work. We invite you to help us to make this happen and to move to the next level. We have set up another crowd fundraiser, please take a look, watch the video, read the information and help us to reach our goal. Please donate generously and share with your friends.

Thank you for your assistance. We look forward to updating you of the progress of our campaign and of course of the dresses
